This list is not complete and contains items that are found within the Skyrim: Hearthfire DLC. Children also do not accept gifts that have been stolen. The Hearthfire DLC added a number of sweets to give your children so if you’re cooking, if it’s a pastry assume it could be gifted and give it a try.

Gift Acquisition

Not everyone knows where to find gifts for their children, and the only gifts that can be made are food items and various daggers. This is a list of shops/locations where you are likely to find gifts. Wooden swords/daggers can be found under weapons, while dolls and child clothing is found in MISC.

  • General Stores – There is a general store in every major hold (whiterun, markarth, riftin, windhelm, solitude) and it’s possible to purchase a variety of gifts provided they’re available in the shop inventory.
  • Khajiit Caravan – The caravans have a high chance of selling toys (swords/dolls).
  • Dressers/chests/similar containers – Even in a bandit den be sure to check all the dressers and wardrobes, as there’s a chance you’ll find a dress/tunic and a toy or two.
  • Radiant Raiment – In Solitude, this shop provides child clothes regularly.
  • Households with children – Anywhere books in general are located is good but households that have kids are more likely to also have children’s books on their shelves. They’re also more likely to have sweets.
  • Wealthy homes – it’s important you befriend these people so it’s not stealing as a child won’t take stolen gifts, but wealthier locations tend to have more sweets available for the taking.

  1. too bad you can’t give your children real weapons that way i could get those lazy little sh*ts to be productive and kill their mother some chickens to make food with

    now that i think about it i probably should not be a mother

    • Late to the Party I know….But on the Switch Anniversary version which is what I have….You can give them a fully upgraded and magically enhanced dagger and wooden sword. You can give them Any kind of Dagger but I gave Mine some cold hard steel with frost magic since frost magic slows down enemies and the daggers I gave them were daggers I had used in my travels. I had also prepared Steel Swords in the same manner for them but they wouldnt take them….I was disappointed….BUT I was able to fully upgrade and enchant their wooden swords with lightning magic so they have lightning rods basically. Also from my experience they will only attack things IF they cant run from it. So they might not even use the weapons but its good to make sure they have the weapons and a house carl and a Mom/Dad to help protect them….Also the Mom/Dad keeps them calm and happy so they dont fight with each other. Anyway hope that helps.

  2. it turns out my good for nothing son can’t chase a chicken to save his life so i need to give him something with reach like a bow or crossbow…..or a warhammer
